Original Music from Brian Dyer Stewart #61

Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,

    I'm resending the music emails - the mail server had some issues and a lot of folks didn't receive the newsletter.  So a second round.  My apologies if you're getting two of these.

    The song this cycle is All of My Daytimes. Forty-three years ago, during the summer, Pammy and I, who had been friends for many years, saw the light, fell in love and decided to get married in November.  My childhood friend, Denny, and his beloved, Martha, were also getting married that fall, in October.  This song came as we approached our wedding times.  It was first performed at Denny and Martha's wedding.  They then performed it at Pammy's and mine.  We just passed out 43rd anniversary this week and I found myself wanting to record it and send it out.

    The world scene and the state of things at home continues to be hard, with such terrible suffering and troubles.  If it's helpful to you, listen to the playlist, Times of Sorrow,  some piano improvs that help me focus and might give comfort.  And do what you can - speak, act, love, sing together.

   My best to each,



I'm sending you a monthly offering from original music I've been writing over many years. I've been so bold as to add your email to my newsletter list.  You can unsubscribe at any time (link at the bottom of the email).

Many songs are recorded solo, some are from different musical twinings from over the years - all are original tunes, with some occasional collaborations.

   Play your favorites!

    I've also added a Favorites feature so that, as the playlists grow, you can mark those songs you particularly like and just listen to those, again from using the drop down filter at the top of the playlist.  Right now it's a two-step process.  You have to click on the song you want to mark on the playlist and then go to the side bar (bottom on phone) and click the gray heart so select; click again to deselect. 

    On the technical side, the favorites function relies on you not clearing your cookies, often the default setting. Favorites will be lost if cookies are cleared. I hope to add a login feature that would allow you to keep your selections without cookies.

    Finally, realizing that many people no longer have a CD player, Leonore and I made our three albums available for free here on the site in playlists.  There's a new tab, Albums, on the top menu.   Select the album you want to hear from the dropdown and enjoy.  Songs are free to download as well.  We will make some CDs for those who may want that medium - if that is your desire, feel free to contact me.


Listen to All of My Daytimes
